    go to the crystal screen at at the top there will be a tab that says shard crystals, tap that and you will see. You may have enough for a few free premiums if you've been in an alliance, been giving away a bunch in events.

    How many 3 stars do you have right now? It may be worth just doing the 4 star arena too as most beginners are in the same boat and it doesn't take much to place relatively high, actually less points than the arena in which you use 2 stars at times. The higher end scores are higher but the dropoff after the first hundred or so is steep. Can rack up multiple 3 stars each round instead of just duping it once over the two sets of arenas.

    We have a combined rating over 2.4 million so the average member is around 80k. We were around 1.6M when I joined the alliance 2 months ago.

    These guys are ridiculous and either play all day or spend a shit ton or cash, sometimes both. I just used my 6 weeks between jobs to go completely crazy. Since starting my new job a month ago my progress has certainly slowed a bit.

    That clan is about right for you with your rating though, it all really just depends on the other guys being active. Overall rating can be misleading and isn't the most important thing when joining an alliance. You'd rather be in a 200k alliance with guys who play every day and try to achieve milestones as a squad than a 500k one with ppl who only log on every 3 days.

    Also I know some ppl sell 1 and 2 stars but I'd advise against it. Every champ helps build your overall rating and will make you more attractive when looking to join a better alliance. I've got 97 champs but probably only use about 15-20 on a regular basis.

    Yeah we're pretty active I guess. Don't really have anything to compare it to tho. We've been doing Alliance quests pretty frequently. Been getting some good shit. Most frustrating is still 0 4 stars and trying to get catalysts to rank up.

    So shitty that he is just a re skin with the same exact moves as the original spiderman after they said he would be different. Re skins are starting to annoy me, I already have a duped 4 star spidey.

    guys nearing 10k or higher I might be able to get you into a decent alliance the leader of my previous one started to feed his main alliance. If interested lmk and I'll see what I can do. Think they are around 500k but haven't looked in awhile.

    New job has killed my grinding, just realized a day into the new spiderman arena that Electro 4 star is the prize for being top 5 percent. He is one of the few champs I still don't have in 3 or 4 star, so looks like I'll have to go after it the next 2 days here to wrap up a 4 star. 3 million should be more than enough, can do that fairly easily especially after taking 4 more 4 stars to rank 3. Now have about 16 characters over 2k which is good for points in arena. Will need to rattle off a 200 streak or so.

    Just did a count on my 3 stars since it had been awhile, up to 39 with the majority of them duped at least once. Should hit 40 if I get top 5 percent in this arena and get the new spiderman along with 4 star Electro.

    No it is, top 400 get the new spiderman but in my bracket the top 5% outside of the top 400 get 4 star electro and 3 star spiderman instead. Already having the regular spiderman 4 star duped I actually prefer the prize giving both Electro and 3 star new spiderman over just the 4 star new spiderman.

    Scarlet witch just became my first douple dupe 4 star, now at level 40. She is one of the best characters on the game when duplicated, does pretty much every special in the game. One more tier 4 catalyst and she will be my first champ to go rank 4 and over 3k. Back among my top 4 again too which is nice.

    Yeah I got him as well along with Electro 4*. 4 guys in my alliance went hard and duped symbiote spidey in 4 star, like 3 finished around top 50. I just don't have the grinding time I used to and already have regular spidey 4 star duplicated. Our new leader has been crushing arenas, he was 5th in the one that ended Sunday and top 25 or so again this time.

    You gotta spend a bunch of units to just recharge your top team over and over in veterans and just grind for hours at a time. I was probably using 600 units an arena when I was placing top 200 consistently in that bracket.

    How many 3 stars are you up to? Should really try and take a crack at the 4 star arena while still intermediate, especially with the new percentage based rewards. It will take a million or more to get top 100 but probably won't take near that to get top 5%. You earn way more points per fight with 3 and 4 stars than 2 stars as well. I did the math and at my max I can rack up about 250k an hour when at peak grind mode. Guys with rank 4 4 stars can clear 300k easily. The leader of my alliance can do 2.5M to 3M in points a day, he had 9 million when he came in 5th place last week. The most I've ever done was 6 million in the war machine arena last month.

    Oh yeah you can, if you recharge one champ that will give you 5 teams. You have more than the majority of intermediates so even tho you won't touch the people that dropped a shit load of cash on crystals you will still beat the vast majority of players in your bracket. Just gotta play as much as possible. I was getting top 50 in that bracket with 1.2-1.5 million a few months back. God I miss those days. I focused on using all my iso on my 3 and 4 stars when I got them to rank them up and make their fights worth more points, totally neglecting my 2 stars for the most part. It worked out well for me, I haven't even touched the arena where you use your 2 stars in months.

    Once you get past 15 wins the matches become easy the rest of the way so long as you stay above a minimum team ranking threshold. In veterans bracket your team has to total over 4500 to keep the matches easy in the 4 star arena. I have like 10 teams that fit that qualification now so I only use those 30 or so champs once I get past 15. That way i get 3x multiplier for the entire arena basically which makes it easy to rack up points instead of constantly restarting your streak over and over.

    Nice, if you can manage to get her again she is a beast. Her assassination is one of the better awakened abilities. I'd love to get her, I only have Capt. Marvel, duped Thor, and duped Black Bolt for cosmic 4 stars. Black Bolt duped is one of the most underrated champs on the game.

    his laceration is pretty solid and will bleed out opponents quickly, when duped black bolt gets permanent fury and critical hit boosts when hit by opponents. Makes him pretty filthy the rest of the fight.

    My alliance formed a partnership with top 5 alliance Illuminati recently, they brought some of their guys over and their leader is currently heading up our operation. We went from 2.5M to 3M basically overnight. Also finally took my first champ to rank 4, should have another there next week.

    We came in 6th for the 7 day summoner advancement event that just ended, 1K 5 star shards for this guy. Top 10 is always pretty awesome when we manage it. Also finished 5th in the 2nd tier of alliance quests, so we got bumped up to the top tier in the game alongside the best alliances like MMX, real solid week for my alliance. I bumped Black Bolt up as my 2nd rank 4 4 star and have started redoing my masteries to get the most out of my champs and increase their rating. The first time I did my masteries I had no clue what I was doing and have realized just how important and beneficial they can be when done correctly. I'm only halfway done redoing them and my top champs have already gained like 200-300 in rating each. Just compare the below photo to the one above.

    Every time you reach a new summoner level you get a mastery point. I'm at level 48 so I have 48 points to use to give my champs certain advantages and useful attributes when fighting. They are split into 3 trees, attack, defense, and utility. You can reset them if you want in case you chose poorly the first go around. Any mastery you paid to open with stony cores will still be open if you reset, you just have to reallocate your points. I reset my attack and utility trees and am doing my defense tomorrow which is where I wasted the most of my points. I spent them on the cheap options you start out with instead of spending a little money unlocking the masteries that boost your rating a ton and help you avoid damage/deal more damage during your fights. This is what my new attack and utility trees look like, and I am redoing my defense tomorrow. I spent like 50 bucks redoing the first half thus far but it will be worth it for me. You can set them differently depending on what you'd like to focus on. Different settings are better for fighting in the arena vs. using champs in alliance quests. It really is kind of confusing and I needed a lot of help trying to pin down the best setup for me.

    If you notice I only used 1 point in the first 2 options just so that I could gain the ability to unlock the more powerful masteries further along the route. The first time I did them I had like 7/9 and 9/9 for the first two options which left me at a big disadvantage.

    I'll post my defense when I redo it tomorrow, currently have way too many points tied up in that.

    Finished with my mastery reconstruction, you can notice that Scarlet Witch went from a 3154 to a 3483 and will likely jump over 3500 when I get my next mastery point to use. Also a guy in my alliance who crushes crystals at a ridiculous pace got his first 5 star already, Starlord. I have 2200 of the 10k shards needed for my first 5 star. Taking my 3rd 4 star to rank 4 this week, deciding between Starlord, Ant Man, or Yellow Jacket.

    Yes, they are indeed the worst. I've stopped spending, my roster is stacked enough and I get really good rewards through alliance events. Get a new 4 star every week or so through the shards from summoner advancement and 3 day events. I really only play for AQ anymore. I've got 2 5 stars so far but haven't ranked them up much.
